Kalimera House

A home away from home for people who need accommodation closer to medical services.

Welcome to Kalimera House.

 

Your home away from home in Bunbury

Apart from battling a cancer diagnosis, patients living outside metropolitan areas often face the additional burden of having to travel long distances for daily treatment, or finding accommodation closer to their cancer treatment centre.

Kalimera House, located in close proximity to the South West Health Campus in Bunbury, offers two modern and fully equipped units, each with 2- or 3-bedrooms, enabling families to stay together while a loved one is undergoing treatment. Children are also accepted.
